Responding to Monday’s launch of the Royal College of Emergency Medicine STEP campaign in Scotland, Ian Ritchie PRCSEd said:

"As our sole focus as a Royal College is patient care, we endorse the campaign’s work to improve safety and quality in Emergency Departments.

"There is a clear correlation between safety and staffing levels and we support a closer integration of primary care and emergency services. Exit block and overcrowding also need to be addressed, especially given the impact these have on planning and delivering surgery.”
